Thermal Screwpiles
Available in several sizes to fit your type of construction.

 

Support Head

Fixed or adjustable, flat or U-shaped, Postech offers a full range of support heads tailored to your project’s needs.

Thermal insulation

This specially formulated insulation system, durable and permanent, forms a protection zone that prevents water, cold air, frost and ice from forming at the base of the Postech Thermal Screw Pile, providing optimum protection against movement caused by frost and thaw.

Galvanized Steel

The Postech Thermal Screw Piles are fully galvanized, which provides durable protection against corrosion.

Protected Air Chamber

Blade

Installed below the frost line, it serves as the load bearer and at the same time provides effective resistance to uplift. Indeed, Postech Thermal Screw Piles are both a foundation and an anchor. The size of the blade is established based on the loads to be supported and the type of soil in which the screw pile is installed.

Your Postech certified installer will guide you in selecting the appropriate Thermal Screw Pile needed for your project.
